LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Neighbors who want action taken against abandoned homes on their streets should be happy to hear there is more money coming to the program, along with more homes on the list.

Thursday, Mayor Greg Fischer and Councilwoman Attica Scott announced a 30 percent increase in the number of houses demolished over the past year.

An amount of $25,000 in infrastructure money will be dedicated in District one to help get rid of houses that have no future.

On the first of every month the City will publish a list of newly foreclosed or demolished houses
